Canal Fishing and River Fishing
Whether you are canal fishing or river fishing - looking after the canals and waterways is in an angler’s own interests - discarding hooks and lines, bottles and tins can kill or injure wildlife and fish.
Consider the enjoyment and safety of others by making sure the towpath is easily passable by pedestrians and cyclists by keeping your rods, poles and fishing tackle tidy.
Please don’t be tempted to obstruct locks, bridges, designated moorings, water points or turning points. If your keep net or tackle is damaged in these locations then it is your own fault!
Boat crews will need access to the bank at least within 25 metres of locks or moveable bridges so please do not fish there – in summer on busy waterways it is best to allow enough room for three or four boats to wait before these obstructions.
When canal fishing or river fishing use a pole cup if you need to feed ground bait close to moored boats. Do not throw or catapult groundbait onto the decks or against the hulls of boats – you wouldn’t like someone doing that to your car or house!
Please respect the privacy of people on occupied moored boats, including those on the opposite bank. Try to fish at least 15 metres away.
There are some larger boats that will not be able to avoid you if you fish on the outside of bends.
Take special care when canal fishing and river fishing by not fishing within 30 metres of overhead power lines. Power lines can kill.
